Traffic lights...and pedestrians...and no traffic lights!

You gotta view this.

It is a time lapse video of a busy intersection (Meske Square) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. While the square is a primary site for the city's large festivals and celebrations, it is also a chaotic crossroad for thousands
and thousands of vehicles daily.

I realize this is speeded up...and they probably drive slower than we do here in the States...but it is incredible.

Be sure to keep your eyes on the pedestrians.

@Frank Apisa,
Geepers. That's crazy.. I read between 2004 and 2006, 237 accidents occurred, no notation on the death toll.

No Country/City surely is that poor not to put in some form of policy.

@FOUND SOUL,
Maybe they're just adventurists.

Try driving around the round-about at the Place de l'√Čtoile in Paris ... or cross it as a pedestrian. (Done both some dozen times, without being hurt or damages to the car, between 1971 and today.)
